WASHINGTON – Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading energy and environmental advocate for families and businesses, released the following statement after the details of an energy and climate policy deal between Senators Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer were released:
“Consumer Energy Alliance is pleased to see progress toward an energy and climate deal negotiated by Senate Majority Leader Schumer and Senator Joe Manchin. The emergence of a comprehensive package that can make a material difference is a sign of progress in an area that has long needed more leadership,” CEA President David Holt said.
“From offshore oil, natural gas and wind, to onshore solar, an increase in American energy of all forms is a win for American national security, our shared lower emission future, increased energy reliability, and more affordable energy for the everyday consumer. While we continue to watch the progress of this legislative package closely, on the surface this appears to be a thoughtful initial step toward ensuring that America will remain dominant in all forms of energy for years to come.”
